Would book again”

Merewether Motel has paid attention to detail and tries to please guests. Our only disappointment was our room had a high slim window and we had no outlook at all. The motel is accessible from a back street and there is no signage to direct travelers to it which meant we drove past and turned around. Probably people with a GPS don't need this. The pool is excellent.

Very happy with our stay in this motel.

The pool is clean and spa is well heated so the kids loved it! Will totally recommend this motel to anyone coming to Newcastle.

Best place we stayed at”

Our favourite place we stayed at (out of 7 motels/hotels). Lots of parking, good Internet. Great rooms (with heater!). They have (free) good bikes and there are some lovely rides along the coast to East Newcastle. Walking distance down the road is a shopping centre (with a Coles etc) and a pub (the Mary Ellen). Perfect for a stop-off or for a couple of days exploring the area.

Lovely motel with some quirky extras. The small sink in the bathroom sends the water into the cistern for reuse. There is another sink in the bedroom. Fresh milk Nd a tea towel are added extras. There are free bikes on offer and free apples in the reception. Receptionist was really friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on a short trip to Newcastle to have dinner with friends. Just looking for a cheap place to stay so we didn't have to drive home. Very pleasantly surprised. The place has had a recent renovation and the room was basic but clean, fresh and very comfortable. Great value and suited our purpose perfectly. I'd would not hesitate to stay here again.

Badly let down by the bathroom ”

The rooms were clean modern and well appointed but the bathroom if you could call it that was tiny badly designed and a bit musty. There was not enough room to even dry yourself. No vanity and a mirror in the shower cubicle. The only running water in the bathroom was in a dinky bowl on top of the cistern and only worked after flushing. There was a noisy fan that seemed to be movement controlled and kept up its din for ages every time we went near the “ bathroom “ The fridge was also noisy and could not be turned off. Four star? NO.
